Election, Jesus Christ as the Elect Man

“God’s predestination is revealed and fulfilled in the coming of Jesus Christ into worldly history.”

(Donald G. Bloesch, Jesus Is Victor, p. 32).

Objective work of Christ

“Where Barth’s soteriology stands in most obvious tension with that of historical evangelical orthodoxy is in its objectivism. He affirms that all men are elected by God and adopted into sonship in his eternal decree that comes to historical realization in Jesus Christ.”

(Donald G. Bloesch, Jesus Is Victor, p. 32).

“The saving action of God was fulfilled in the incarnation and atonement of Jesus Christ, for in him we see man reconciled and restored to God. The work of the Holy Spirit is to awaken people to this decisive fact and to bring them into accord with God’s purpose declared in Jesus Christ.”

(Donald G. Bloesch, Jesus Is Victor, p. 33).

“For Barth the final and decisive event of salvation is in the past, in the history of Jesus Christ, though it awaits its full manifestation.”

(Donald G. Bloesch, Jesus Is Victor, p. 33).
